    FC3 perhaps won't .... try debian or slackware, RH9 maybe fit as well....

    Hi,
    You can install linux with "text mode".So it is very easy for you to manage and your system can run very smooth.Go Ahead.

    I belive the minimum amount of ram for FC3 graphical is some odd 80MBs or something like that, but older redhat distros like RH9 should work fine with that amount of ram
